This sparkling wine is complex and elegant. Malolactic fermentation adds creaminess to the soft-textured pallet, with good fruit weight and lingering flavour, followed by dry clean finish with crisp acidity.
Riverina New South Wales
The Riverina AGI is centred on Griffith and is roughly circular with towns on the boundary including Mossgiel, Condobolin, Temora, Junee, Culcairn, Berrigan, Finley, Deniliquin and Moulamein. It does not extend as far south as the Murray River. As such, the Riverina wine region is smaller than the generally-known Riverina area.
The Riverina region relies heavily on the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Scheme, initiated between 1906 and 1912 by Sir Samuel McCaughey.
The Riverina region produces 60% of the grapes in New South Wales from over 20,000 hectares (49,000 acres) of vines, 25% of Australian wine.
The Riverina region is well known for its dry red wines, especially those made from Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Durif are also grown White wine varieties in the region include Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon blanc, and Moscato.
